Have any of you 1st gens had to deal with a leaking gas cap? It seems that no matter what we do, the gas is leaking out of the cap and running down during the race.

The return line is operational, and the tank is vented to the atmosphere... any other thoughts?

Make sure the gas cap hasn't been replaced with a vented unit. The cap should be a non-vented cap, and venting is done through the vent line. Also possible to have a small cut in the refueling vent line, which is the small diameter line on the filler neck. Need to pull the tank to get a good look at it though...

New gas caps are like $5 at any parts store. Gasket in cap could be bad....
